It is alluring to be wrapped in the blanket when the most important thing is to get out of it and rush to college. Moreover, pressing the snooze button in alarm clocks countless times seems to be a regular habit for most of us converting five more minutes into hours. The end result: miss vital lectures and poor attendance record! But Sankalp Sinha, currently a 3rd year Automobile engineering student at SET did found a way to break his irritating habit of waking up late and missing his lectures.
Necessity is the mother of invention and Sankalp exercised his creative cells to do something out-of-the-box. Eventually, he came up with the idea of an alarm clock that emits a small electric shock via the snooze button. The device called as singNshock combines an alarm clock (with a tiny bit of taser-like qualities) with a music player. The touchscreen interface of the alarm clock with LED illuminated sides can store up to 32GB of music so you wake up to your favorite song. And the moment you press the aluminum–coated snooze button, you get a harmless electric shock to jump you out of the bed. Sankalp’s artistic alarm clock with a beautiful touch interface certainly is a step ahead than traditional alarm clocks.
Sankalp was born in Patna and grew up in Deoghar, a small town in Jharkhand. Sankalp attributes his creativity to the environment he received during his childhood. The inspiration to create something and contribute to the world has always fascinated Sankalp. His father is a writer and his mother loves to paint. It was in 2010 that Sankalp found his calling in designing and since then he hasn’t looked back. He has been consistently making efforts to learn different types of software and HTML programming to improve his skills. In the past 3 years, Sankalp has designed 6 products and his latest innovation, the ‘shock alarm clock’ has created a sensation in the market. He has also successfully created his own website portfolio on his own. That is truly inspiring Sankalp! We wish you all the best for a successful life ahead.
